No, not other than the code comments and email exchanges.  Luckily, the
basic indexing code and data structures are not very complex.  Jose (and
the other Bill) did a bit of voodoo on the code to make it take up a lot
less space and run a lot faster.  Some of that code I've have not tried
to grok yet.  Comments (added to the code) are always welcome.

I need to release 2.4.2 and merge it with the main branch so we are back
to one development version.
